The Green Team Superheroes is a Presidents' Environmental Youth Award-winning program that builds lifelong leaders in sustainability through a student led, real-world, project-based program. Each Green Team Superhero is assigned a classroom in their school to lead and monitor while conducting sustainability audits, delivering presentations, and implementing school wide contests. They proudly wear their green superhero capes and convey their message to their peers, becoming not only champions in sustainability, but leaders throughout the building.
Every school can create a Green Team Superheroes program and empower the entire community to make a difference. With the leadership of founder Lisa Dewil, she will work with key school staff to implement and execute a program that delivers maximum results. It’s flexible, cost-effective, impactful and fun! The time is now to start a Green Team Superheroes program in your area, because together, we can make a difference.
Thank you Green Team Superheroes for all of your efforts AND for collaborating with PBC to further reduce waste in our schools WHILE growing a new generation of eco-conscious leaders!
